Publisher's Summary

In Jane Austen's classic Pride & Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet never expects to see Mr. Darcy again after his disastrous proposal in Hunsford. But what if family business required him to stay at Rosings after giving her his letter? Coming face to face with Mr. Darcy only days later could give Elizabeth a new chance to understand him... or chance for even more misunderstandings.

Interesting insight on well known characters.

While I'm not loving the takes on Mr. Bennet, Mr. Gardiner and to an extent; Georgiana- I love the insight on why Elizabeth and Darcy behave the way they do. The way each was brought up and the impact their parents had on the people they are today is believable. Georgiana isn't the super sweet, timid thing she is in P&P and the other variations but she isn't a demon and does one crappy thing, not that horrible given her station, situation and age. Of course, like other Reynolds' works there is premarital hanky-panky. Unlike the others..... Elizabeth does well in the pre game warm up but doesn't hit one out of the park each time she and Darcy are up to bat......
Embarrassing to say, but true.

Tortuous journey of Darcy and Elizabeth

Very clever use of P and P premise and details woven with more modern knowledge of psychology of young people falling in love. Self confidence and sexual shame issues of young women explored as part of Elizabeth Bennet's journey toward self knowledge. I enjoyed the ride.
